Regular visitors — and thank you all for your kind thoughts and good wishes — may have noticed, being uncommonly perspicacious, that blogging has been light in these parts.
The inhabitants of La Casa de Los Gatos experienced a sudden crisis when the (relatively strong) OTC painkillers we're on for various episodes of gimpitude quit working, while a bout of carpal tunnel syndrome and a "tennis" elbow tendonitis simultaneously decided to play havoc with the usual bodily decrepitude. Goddammit. It's not easy being a gimp. But pain can always be fixed, and indeed, the drugs are good, if incredibly powerful. Spending a couple of days as a puddle of mush will fix the most recalcitrant pain. And our woes are small indeed compared to others'.
We refer to our dear companion-in-arms, Ms. Manitoba, who has not stepped up to the blogging plate due to a death in the family. Having lost multiple family members over the past five or so years, she — while not totally incapacitated by or unexpecting of this latest — is nevertheless devastated and occupied with the wherewithal of death.
This has been a bad year all around, methinks. In the event, back to blogging, at least for me, and of Ms. Manitoba, more later, when she returns. Stumble It!
